helped save from destruction? >> as the libyan president flew to benghazi to visit the destroyed consulate today, he said he deeply regretted the loss of life. >> we're doing our best to bring them to justice. >> the attack showed he does not have complete control of his country. in cairo where the united states turned its back on its old friend hosni mubarak, radicals are troying to destroy the embassy with running battles with riot police in tahrir square, tear gas and stones. it's ironic that with american diplomats inside the embassy who helped to give these demonstrators, these protestors a voice and allowed them to actually carry out this anti-american clashes that we're seeing right now. so what did washington think would happen if he won? as the new egyptian president morsi was campaigning to lead the world's biggest arab country in elections the u.s. supported, he used radical creatures to stump for him. >> without a doubt he doesn't support the violence. >> ed hussein, a former muslim extremist is now with the council on foreign relations. >> what motivates them is the
